How To

Step to setup an SSH channel on Virtual Private Server

SSH is a network protocol that provides a secure access to remote computers. This application allows remote login and other network services to operate securely over unsecured network. So, if you have a Virtual Private Servers (VPS) located miles away from you in a remote location then installing a SSH channel can help you securely access your server.  

SSH also known as Secure Socket Shell, is one of the most used protocol by network administrators to manage website, database and servers. With SSH, you can securely log in to VPS, execute commands, configure the system, upload files, and probe into all critical issues occurring in your server/PC.

Step2: Enter your username

A new window will appear asking user name of SSH at the “login as” prompt.
